forces farewell tribute today in honor of defense secretary lienon panetta. he will be at joint base myer henderson at 4:00 this afternoon. this is the formal goodbye for panetta stepping down from his position. yesterday, he testified over the attacks in benghazi where he revealed there was no advanced warning for those attacks. he said that factor plus the time and distance involved prevented the u.s. military from reaching the consulate before four americans were killed. panetta also confirmed he personally broke the news to president obama the night of the attack but that the two did not speak the rest of the evening as the assault continued to unfold. the president had told panetta to do whatever he needed to do to protect our people out in benghazi. today, house democrats wrap up their annual retreat with a little comedy. stephen colbert is speaking to the caucus thanks to an invite from nancy pelosi. after his comedy routine, pelosi will interview colbert in front of the house democrats. a spokesman said they assume this is colbert's attempt at a

hill hearing. leon panetta and martin dempsey testified about the benghazi attacks attacks. he accused susan rice of lying about the attacks when she appeared on the sunday tv talk shows last september. here is part of the questioning in that hearing. >> chairman dempsey, at the time of the meeting, would you have -- how would you have characterized the attack on the compound? >> i did not know. >> it could have been either one. >> that is right. >> it could have been spontaneous were preplanned. but i have to ask the same question, would you agree that was a preplanned attack? unequivocably? >> at the time, when this was going on, we were not sure was taking place. when i later found out that you had rpgs and there was an attack, there was no question in my mind. >> my position would be they knew that at the time because i have talked to several people that have stated they knew it. unequivocably that would have been a terrorist attack. the thing i am getting to come and do you agree that it was a terrorist attack? >> when i appeared before this committee three days afterwards
. what came out because the same day he testified we had outgoing secretary of defense panetta, went to testify on benghazi and told us what we learned. two weeks ago, we talked last week about the difference between what panetta and clinton said about iran versus hagel, and two weeks ago when they went on "60 minutes" we called it the biggest pay off in history. in that show, i remember suggesting one of the reasons that came out of hillary clinton's testimony was interesting to pursue, what was the president doing? we now know the president wasn't engaged. they had a 5:15 minute meeting that was preplanned and he did not talk to secretary of defense, clinton, and according to panetta, talked to no one. what we have a foreign policy that is coming apart. >>gregg: you were in the carter administration. all hands on deck the. >> the president himself, for ten, 15, 20 hours a day, in the middle of the greatest moments of this, involved himself personally. we were trying to get them out the day they flew home we were there all night and the next morning up until the time of the inaugura
the benghazi attack. hagel remains in limbo, as does defense secretary leon panetta, who isn't exactly sure when he will be able to return to his california walnut groves. >> this is, i believe, my final press conference here at the pentagon briefing room. there are moments when i thought i was part of the last act of an italian opera. you're not sure exactly when it would end, and when the fat lady would sing. >> for now the only certainty is much more congressional uncertainty. joy, does leon panetta need a shirt that says "i survived a chuck hagel filibuster and all i got was this lousy t-shirt?" just when he thinks it can't get worse, it's actually seemingly gotten worse. >> this is insane. i mean, last night i went through, and i was looking at the george w. bush cabinet nominations. none of which were filibustered. just for fun. just because i knew we were talking about it. his second term cabinet nominations, the majority went through by voice vote. they didn't even bother to take a poll of the senate. people like michael mukaze sailed through and alberto gonzalez, who went to the be
panetta will be honored at a farewell ceremony and fort myer, virginia. it will include remarks from president obama and joint chiefs of staff general martin dempsey. that is live at 3:45. secretary of state john kerry will meet the canadian prime minister. the team so -- the keystone pipeline will be in the conversation. a rock obama's decision on the $7 billion will be the test of his a nod with a promise to act on change in his second term. there will be a news conference. that will be at about 2:30. a pro forma session at 11l0:00. 2:00 for legislative work. the chamber resources -- resources at 5:30. the house takes up a bill that will continue a pay freeze for federal workforce. watch the house live here on c- span and the senate on c-span2. >> having observed a steady improvement in the well-being of our citizens, i can report to you that the state of this union is good. >> once again, in keeping with tradition, i have come to report to you on the state of the union. i am pleased to report that america is much improved. there is good reason to believe that improvements will co
sure this wouldn't happen. and now throbbing. poor leon panetta has to stay in the pentagon even longer like george bailey never getting out of bed. now because of you mr. reid, the chicken hawks have come home to roost. harry reid spent much of last year getting pressure to reform the rule but he blew the chance. then he apologized for blowing the chance. he said you on udall and mercury were right and he was wrong. he promised us come the beginning of the almighty 2013 session, he would make filibuster reform happen. on the first day harry had a chance to change the filibuster rules with a simple majority and harry reid stepped to the plate and filibustered on filibuster. he choked like george w. bush on pretzel nights on filibusters. he folded. s the
yesterday that it wasn't him. secretary panetta said it wasn't him. in hearings, the acting d.c.i. mike morell said it wasn't him. ambassador kennedy said it wasn't him and the f.b.i. said it wasn't them. we've eliminated a lot of people who had contacts within the intelligence community that knew firsthand what was going on in benghazi. let me ask you again: who briefed the president on actually what was happening throughout this seven-hour period? who was your primary point of contact in the intelligence community? >> as chief of staff, i didn't usually reach out directly to the intelligence community. i worked through the national security staff. >> was there anybody from the intelligence community in that briefing session on a continual basis to your knowledge? >> the intelligence community was in close touch with the white house, with the national security team on a near constant basis. >>steve: it's pretty clear nobody was briefing the president of the united states. it was -- keep in mind it was a couple of months before the election, and clearly the picture we are getting right
panetta said it would be irresponsible for the congress to allow it to happen. many of us agree, it must be avoided. but apart from that challenge in the next month, or series of months, the long-term outlook for the department of defense is that it must do more with less, and secretary hagel, if he is confirmed, will have that management task, and he is one of the people in this country who is almost uniquely qualified to carry it out. and i believe that he will with great distinction. he will take care of our men and women in uniform and strengthen our national defense, he will do what he thinks is right even if it's not popular, and he is, finally, as everyone has said, a good and decent man. i thank in particular senator mccain for his very compelling and telling comment during our consideration before the vote in the armed services committee. he said -- and i agree -- no one should impugn chuck hagel's character. he's a person of integrity and character. and i believe that he will have the respect at all levels of our defense, men and women who serve and sacrifice every day, men and
to such a conclusion. i am a great admirer of secretary panetta. the great national security background. as you may remember, he was chairman of the budget committee in the house. he has a better handle on those issues than any other person. he is beside himself. he says shame on the congress. shame on all of us. there is absolutely no future and no particular -- and no future for defense contractors, waiting to see if we are going to go over another cliff. it is insane. in case you missed it, there was a favorability rating among or so ago. --a moth or so ago. did you know the, favorability of congress was the one below a colonoscopy? we deserve it. having said that, please have the president called us over to the white house, and sit down and try to solve this. can't we come to the white house and sit down and ellis' try that? what do we need to do? what do you want, and what do we want, and what is necessary? general them seem mentioned this morning in a hearing. we just cancel deployment of an aircraft carrier going to the middle east. the and know what the sailors do? they have canceled the le
about it during the retirement ceremony for defense secretary leon panetta. panetta talked about it wednesday at georgetown university and warned about the damage sequestration would do to the nation's economy. this is a little of what he had to say. we will continue our conversation with ray locker of "usa today." [video clip]>> if this happens, we will fire as many as 8000 dod employees throughout the country. they could face a 20% cut in their salary. you do not think that will impact our economy or jobs? you do not think that will impact our ability to recover from the recession? we will cut back on army training and maintenance. putting about 2/3 of our active for great -- active regain combat at a reduced level. we have to cut their training. we will have to cut back on the ability to support the troops who are not in the war zone. we put more stress on those who are in the war zone. we are going to have to shrink our global naval operations. with a reduction of our western pacific naval operation. this idea about having to rebalance will be impacted. we will cut the air fo
the problem. >> jack, in the armed services hearing last week secretary panetta testified that following his and general dempsey's 5:00 meeting after the benghazi attack, they had no further contact with the white house and it was their understanding that you, as chief of staff, the individual briefing the president. is that accurate? >> i did speak with the president that evening. the national security staff was working on the issue on a nonstop basis. >> who was briefing the president? were you? >> i was in the room when the president was briefed but i was not briefing the president. >> brennan said it wasn't him, secretary panetta said it wasn't him, ambassador kennedy said it wasn't him and the f.b.i. said it wasn't them. we have eliminated a lot of people who had contact with any intelligence community that knew first half hand about what was going on in benghazi. let me ask you again, who briefed the president on what was happening throughout the seven-hour period? >> in the conversations i was in the national security staff was present. >> was john brennan included in that? >> you're
in the hearings. the administration has been very clear. leon panetta when he was head of the cia was clear that it is torture and the u.s. does not engage in torture. while there is a continuation of policies related to drones and targeted assassinations, i don't think that there is necessarily a continuation of or ttorture. >> well, the debate we are not having is what are the contours of this, and if we want to win hearts and minds to go back to a vietnam plauz, what are thrase, the contours of this? will it expand and come back to hit us in a strong way? >> as someone who knows the pro and con intell and we send people into the area to make people suspicious of each other, and killed people in a domestic sphere, aed on the know the ugliness and the nastiness of that and the ways in which have sat over and against any american notice that we are not the kind of country that does that, but to get on the other side of co-intel to say i need that to be reflected in the 21st history. >> and to that, brennan was the architect of the waterboarding program or in the testimony he said he was awa
in the midst of the declining defense budget and just last week secretary panetta announced the indefinite delay of carrier stryker the deployment in the middle east development of was undoubtedly welcome by the regime in tehran. in egypt despite the best hopes, the president morsi and the brotherhood have shown a trip and hostility towards the opposition groups and the minorities have taken an increasing tone to our ally israel and these developments require as to think long and hard over what assets we are going to be sharing with them, the controversy will f-16 transfers. but it's a tough area and i think if you look through that area, and general austin you know that iran maintains determined to acquire nuclear weapons capability that's been going on for a long time we found that our intelligence has really behind the curve so far. it's serious. it's big stuff over there. in iraq for premature withdrawal tester ackley contributed to the deteriorating said chicken to the two securities attrition and allowed al qaeda to establish a foothold in syria. the brutality has now claimed the li
, secretary panetta, who is going to be leaving his job in less than two hours, chairman of the joint chiefs martin dempsey, and others have already testified regarding the athat can claimed four -- the attack that claimed four american lives. chuck hagel had nothing to do with the attack in benghazi. the administration hasn't been forthcoming is outlandish. there are serious consequences to this delay. consequences that are occurring right now. the president is making some important decisions about afghanistan. he announced to the world just a day or two ago that 34,000 troops will be coming home during the next year from afghanistan. we're negotiating with the afghan government regarding how we'll support them beyond 2014. negotiations are going on right now. i heard today from former senator john kerry that he's headed for the middle east. why? syria. that's something else that the secretary of defense has to be concerned about. next week while we're on recess, while we're on recess, they're having a nato defense ministers meeting. they'll be in brussels? what to do? to coordinate ou our
enforcement. and then 13% to defense spending. that is something that outgoing defense secretary leon panetta has said could impact military preparedness. that's sort of the approach. alex i have to tell you. as we have seen in the past, both sides are really digging in and we're seeing the same old sticking points. president obama making the case that he wants any package to include new revenues. they have put forth ideas that include rolling back tax breaks for big companies, large corporations, oil and gas companies. republicans say look, we just gave the president new taxes in the last budget battle. so they are saying that this should solely be worked on in terms of entitlement reform. so those are the sticking points. but alex i have to tell you, economists have warned that if the sequester does in fact kick into effect it could have a negative impact on the economy. >> kristen, looking ahead to the state-of-the-union speech, how much do you think we'll hear from the president on his fight to protect the middle class? >> reporter: i think that's going to be a big focus of president obam
and saw the problem. >> secretary panetta testified they had no further contact with the white house after benghazi attack. were you briefing the president? >> i did speak with the president that evening. the national security staff was working on the issue. >> who was briefing the president? when thein teh roohe room president was briefed i did not brief the president. odmi hearings, tehe clapper said it was not him. several others said it was not them. we have eliminated a lot of people who contact within the intelligence community ben knew what was going on in benghazi. who briefed the president, was happening throughout this seven hour period? >> in the conversations i was in, the national security staff was president. >> would john brennan have been included? >> that is a different question. >> who was a primary point of contact in the intelligence community? >> i worked to the national security staff. >> was there anybody in the intelligence community in that briefing session? >> the intelligence community was in close touch on a near constant basis. >> if the affordable care act as
